    I'm new to the forum and will be a first-timer later in August. 'Not Without Peril' - is this a publication, web page, other document? How can I access it? BTW, enjoyed Corey's photos.

    Never mind, answered my own question after a Google inquiry.

    Its a book by Nicholas Howe. It has a great history of the area and some historical deaths that occurred in the Whites.

    Brad suggested I read it prior to attempting some solo winter summits - he wanted to make sure I had the proper perspective and level of respect before I headed out. It worked as I always thought before acting and evaluated my fitness and circumstance as I did my winter hikes.

    Short version: it will scare you into being careful.

    Here is a link to the Amazon listing for the book.

    slippery trail indeed i can imagine when it's wet. first time was last year...in the lighting..eek!

    does anyone know the name of the trail that starts right in front of the cog railway? i want to try that saturday weather permitting. I'm at work, and don't have my trail book, thought i'd research a bit tonight.

    thanks,
    bill

    Cross the tracks at the Cog base Station - and that trail joins the Jewell. To the left at the junction is to the hikers' parking lot. To the right is up towards Clay.

    Before the summit of Clay hang a right and go right along the side of the ridgeline of the Great Gulf. In good weather it is an awesome view. Cross the cog tracks as you head to the summit. It is a good trail with good footing till you hit the summit cone.

    Also, being on the west side you can see storms coming. There is a lot of time you will be exposed above treeline. So, watch the weather and see what is coming in at you.
